March is a month of change so the choice of feline art for this month is all over the place. This is often the month I’ll choose a monochromatic image or nearly so or even black and white because all other months have color associations for me but March has many, I had a dozen […]

March Nature Desktop Calendar: “You’re My Best Frond”

“You’re My Best Frond” features two tiny fiddlehead ferns just emerged from the leaf litter along the Panhandle trail, caught at just the right angle. They’re rooted in the spot so they’re kind of stuck with each other. It’s a good thing they’re “such good fronds”! It still makes me laugh whenever I look at […]

February Feline Art and Desktop Calendar: “Darling Clementine”

To be perfectly honest, I featured this painting as a monthly desktop calendar in January 2013. I’ve been thinking a lot about Namir lately and the time when I painted this watercolor.

…and it disappeared over the edge and took a piece of my soul with it. Really, on the way home from a quick errand to a shopping center I encountered a stunning winter sunset just beginning to color and decided to take a detour through a local park to see it in progress. All I […]

A Portrait of an Old Cat: Afternoon Nap ~~~ An old cat, a gentleman, he has found a quiet spot, upstairs in the afternoon, and has so perfectly placed himself a little off-center on the expanse of white bedspread, illuminated by stark winter light through the window.

December Featured Nature Art and Desktop Calendar: “Dusk in the Woods”

A fitting way to celebrate the winter holidays and send off the year, with a painting of the “blue hour”, “l‘heure bleue“, that time of transition. Though it is a painting of the woods in snow this painting is still connected to my felines and to my life in a very deep and special way, […]

November Featured Nature Art and Desktop Calendar: “Safe”

For my November nature artwork calendar, this painting captures the colors and even the look of the outdoors this time of year. But it also captures the feel of the season: safe, in familiar territory, with family or loved ones, and giving thanks for the bounty of life. Though they nibble on some of my […]
